Summer School Classes at CC

<p>How many of you recommend taking summer school classes at a local CC? I'm done with all my lower division GE's. I guess i could take math for my lower division major requirements but would it be included in my major GPA?</p>

<p>Also, do you suggest taking easy courses just to boost my overall GPA?</p>

<p>I'm fairly certain those grades won't affect your GPA here at UCSD.</p>

<p>From CC you will get only credit (number of units) but not a grade.</p>

<p>But when applying for jobs, I heard you can put either of your GPA since they're not very specific. Is this true?</p>

<p>Have you ever applied for a job? It'll tell you to list the school name with the GPA associated with that school.</p>

<p>It's not that hard for employers to figure out people are trying to 'game' the system.</p>

<p>Well obviously i have not, this is why I'm asking this question. No need to be rude.</p>

<p>Didn't mean to come off as rude--some people are just forgetful as to what general job applications look like. I've filled out plenty and don't even think twice as to what I fill in anymore.</p>

<p>^i've never applied for a job..so i don't really know what that means.</p>

<p>so when we apply, we'd put the gpa--including both UC and CC grades?</p>

<p>I didn't know that you need to including both UC and CC grades, when you apply for a job.
So the best way to improve your GPA is to take easy CC class for "A"
How about AP credits? Do they count too?</p>

<p>You stratify your GPAs accordingly to where you earned them most of the time; i.e., your CC and UC GPAs are separate in two different sections.</p>

<p>I was planning on taking a couple of GE classes from my CC over the summer, but because of the budget crisis in CA, my CC has very few classes over the summer. All of those classes are already filled by continuing students, who got to register early. There's nothing left; I was even considering taking Anthropology, but even that's filled (no offense Anthro majors :). Sigh.</p>

How often do jobs actually specify UC GPA?</p>

<p>They'll have a section where you specify schools you've attended and list the respective GPAs associated to each school. An employer won't ask you for a "UC" GPA if that's what you're asking. If you list UCSD, they'll want the GPA that corresponds to your GPA that's denoted by your transcript. If you list Mesa, they'll want the GPA that corresponds to your CC GPA.</p>
